Content of dialogue is moderated by the coach and the coach reserves the right to direct content of the conversation to maintain the integrity of the course purpose. Topics not relevant to the conversation may be submitted by email.

Questions or concerns about methodology may be submitted by email. The seminar is not the place for these sorts of exchanges. 

OnBoarding Guide

Students/Parents agree to policies in the OnBoarding Guide for each course in which their student is enrolled.

Dispute resolution

Any dispute by course or monthly/annual members must first be brought to the attention of Kerry Baldwin via email: kerry@mereliberty.com The majority of disputes may be handled through informal communication and in accordance with these terms and conditions. 

Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the use of the Mere Liberty website, registration in any course membership or monthly/annual memberships, or any act or omission for which a member may contend that Mere Liberty is liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability (dispute), shall be finally and exclusively settled by binding arbitration. Judgment upon any award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any state or federal court having jurisdiction in Bernalillo County, New Mexico. The arbitrator shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any dispute in excess of the actual dollar amount paid to Kerry Baldwin through Mere Liberty.

Neither the member nor Kerry Baldwin shall be entitled to join or consolidate claims in arbitration by or against other consumers or arbitrate any claim as a representative or member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity. The member voluntarily and knowingly waives any right they have to a jury trial. These terms provide that all disputes between the member and Kerry Baldwin will be resolved first informally through email or by binding arbitration if informal resolution is impossible. The member thus gives up any rights to go to court to assert or defend his/her rights. The member also gives up his/her rights to participate in or bring class actions. Member rights will be determined by neutral arbitrator(s), not a judge or jury.

Terms and conditions are subject to change. Advanced notice of any significant changes will be provided.
